[stem-dev] Notes from today's STEM community call

STEM Community Call May 24, 2012

On Call: Stefan, Jamie, Matt, Kun, Chris, Werner, Judy


1. 1.4.0 RELEASE PLAN (tentative 9/25/2012): On schedule  

Milestone build around 6/1 (per Matt, runs Saturday night); will be monthly until release 
Plan page and title updated
Integration build available

Features (as below): On schedule        
   Performance improvements
   Parallel map views button (Chris, could you please add a list of new map view features?)
   Simplified creation of new Disease and Population models (Tools for generating new disease plugins)
   Pajek-file Importer:
       Enable import of discrete transportation events
       Enable integration between user graphs and existing STEM graphs
   Polio Example
   Stochastic Modeling Framework
   Ability to Delete Items inside a Graph from Designer Perspective
   Deep copy drag and drop for models
   Create new mixing edges (Chris to put edges back, Jamie to do generator)
   Improved UI for decorators view       
2. NEW DOC FOR 1.4.0: On schedule
* Wiki practice
* Map view features    
* Best Practice for Developers, writing performance critical components in STEM (in progress)
* Additional doc for more realistic food SCENARIO doc
* Need better top level food modeling doc (draft created)
* Stochastic models

* Doc for mixing edges, mixing edge graph generator (Jamie to do) 

* New doc re graphical editor, refactoring, renaming (Chris, Stefan, Matt); see details below under Items from participants    


Chris: Wants to create a farm where prevalence of disease in new population is constant

Jamie: Have to get epidemiology right. Perhaps a genetic model? Or an infector @ every time interval? New kind of infector could generate a constant percentage; could possibly be functional, not just constant. Possible diseases: sickle cell anemia, others



Stefan: Has made progress on this; can now add noise, Boolean flags

5. Items from participants

Jamie: Chris to ask Matthias about mixing edges; is option to use algorithms to scale a good idea? to indicate whether border is open or closed (e.g., Korea)?

Stefan: Build libraries? Create a common border edge remover?  

Stefan: Working on graphic editor, labels, extension; refactoring, renaming

                Matt: Would need to add to java

New documentation for above (See item 2)

Kun: Working on transmission in journal article revision; attended conference, followed up with emails to those interested in STEM

Matt: Working on data model; will require feedback from everyone

Chris: Creating several population models with different locations; need way to make names unique; will open defect to address

                Jamie: Will need to note in documentation

Chris: Images, slides on food production need to be approved by PR before sharing, also some not good enough to share

Jamie: BfR, IBM will each make own poster

Chris: Will make presentation @ Eclipse IDD, needs presentation materials on STEM; Jamie will send to Chris via Matt

Judy: Added third presentation to wiki; will move into references with full proper citation; also needs to go on STEM page

Werner: Presented on STEM @ IBM headquarters in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Hamburg demo camp is June 14

Chris: Will let Werner know if he can attend Berlin event June 20, meet w/ Werner there
